'Watermelon Sugar' stretches the fabric of the original Harry Styles track into a non-linear abstraction. By seeking out hidden shadows, it aims to transform a sunny sound into something more dimmed, introspective, and textured. Look at Harry Styles' eyes, as he is surrounded by models on a beach (cropped out). You can see the boredom, the desperation maybe. I want you to hear that hidden feeling.
